When dead soldiers come back to life, know one understands what it is they want until one of them letâ€™s them know. They want to vote in the up coming presidential election and they want to be heard. The presidents public representatives try to spin this strange tragedy to their own advantage but what happens when the dead vote, who will win the election, the challenger or the man whom sent them to war. Itâ€™s a dead heat until the dead vote. What will happen when the public comes to fear that which they do not understand?
Roger Moore scale screams Heart Stopper; it was only three beats skipped until Dante put a George A. Romero tombstone in the graveyard that put it over the top for me. A master tackling a zombie flick and paying the proper homage to the master of zombieâ€™s, and doing it properly to. Dante has added the correct amount of humor to a scary situation and in the correct fashion; only a true master can do this to someone, not to mention that one of the zombieâ€™s was a dead on look alike for my friend Tim that got me as strange him being fresh out of the war and all. As always be afraid, be very afraid.
